Up-and-coming DJ/producer Villms takes a shot at remixing Steve James’s “Renaissance”, he’s on to something. The solo producer has relatable story – he’s single, young, an undergrad, essentially a bedroom producer, and has a mad passion to get his music out there and climb the ranks.
“Renaissance Ft. Clairity (Villms Remix)” takes the hit song and adds smooth future bass chords and high pitched vocals within the drop, as well as fresh drums attached to the original throughout. The elements are common in 2016, but undoubtedly enhance the vibe of the original.
Villms doesn’t look to be slowing anytime soon, catch more of his new music in 2017 and enjoy his latest remix above.

Electronic, Hip-Hop | New Act Xia Xia Technique Drop Surprise Music Video For “Let Me Show U (How 2 Cut)”

Not much is known about this group, but Xia Xia Technique is making moves – boldly dropping a music video alongside one of their newest tracks “Let Me Show U (How 2 Cut)”, one of only two singles XXT has revealed.
“Let Me Show U (How 2 Cut)” features Psycho Flower as the MC and her guest Sakura, (though it is a 3 member group) as thet pay homage to the 90’s style acid-stained music videos. The animation found within are certainly a trip. The overall sound of “Let Me Show U (How 2 Cut)” is drastically different, which I like, the single has a modern hip-hop voice atop, but the beat is just out there, I suppose experimental electronica would be the best way to describe it, with a dash of live drums in there too.
The vibe is chill, but the voice is empowering, and drop is trippy – an overall dope fusion of experimental sides of the dance music spectrum.

Boston’s Clinton Sparks has been on a meteoric rise over the past couple years, making the transition from a notable DJ to vocal artist. Releases with Macklemore, 2-Chainz, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Mike Posner and Big Sean have catapulted him into stardom,, solidifying his place amongst the biggest pop heavyweights. Released on Cruzach Music Group, “Saturday Night” is arguably Clinton’s biggest song to date, an anthem with a mean hook and even meaner production. Debuted just moments ago, we’ve had “Saturday Night” on repeat all morning, and you should too.
